Its coming to the end of April soon and school will be starting in a few months time. I just wish that I have enough money to travel before schools starts and not worry about anything. Life is too short not to enjoy yourself but at the same time, I need to start planning ahead into my future.
Remember that I was starting my job as a tutor? I have 3 students already! And I finally know how tough it is to be a teacher. Patience, dedication, caring are one of the many qualities a teacher should possess and I am starting to see that now. It makes me wonder about the teachers that taught me throughout the years and how bad I made their everyday life been. I admit I was not the best student when I was in my secondary school but… well people change for the better. At least I think I have.
But one thing is for sure, I enjoy teaching. It gives me a sense of achievement and encouragement when a parent send you praises or when the kid smiles at you because you helped him or her. It just feels great knowing that I have done something great and helped someone. In this way, I know that my passion as a teacher is not just for games and laughter.
People always say do the things you love and love the things you do. I am seeing the difference every passing day.
Recently, I caught up with an old classmate of mine and we talked for a while. We could just talk and talk for days about how we were in our school and she would always pinch my cheeks. I was short and chubby so it was not the best of time as I remembered. But through memory lane, we walked deeper into different conversations and I can’t help but have the feeling of wanting to text or talk to her again. Shall not really talk much about this so soon but I can just say that talking to her makes me feel energized and want to strive for much more. She motivates me and I just want her to know that. 🙂
I still thank the stars that we talked, met and sat under the stars.
